Rob Reiner hasn’t directed a horror film since 1990’s Misery, but that’s about to change with You Belong to Me, which he just signed onto. The film, said to fall in the psychological thriller category with comparisons being made to Cape Fear, was written by David Murray.
Richard Lewis and his Southpaw Entertainment banner will produce with Scott Steindorff of Stone Village, along with Alan Greisman. Steindorff’s Scott Pictures fund will finance. Dylan Russell, Peter Fruchtman, and Scott LaStaiti are executive producing. Reiner’s Castle Rock and Gabriel Jerou from Southpaw will co-produce.
The project centers on a psychiatrist who does the one thing you are never supposed to do with your patients: talk about yourself. Production is planned for the fall in New York, and casting will begin immediately for the four leads, which include the psychiatrist, his wife, their daughter, and the patient’s brother.
Reiner told THR he hasn’t returned to the genre in years because it’s hard to find a story that he hasn’t seen before. “They are hard to make well, but this one has a deep psychological bent to it and a big twist in the end that I didn’t see coming,” he says. “That’s why I decided to take a whack at this one.”
It definitely has our interest – look for more soon.
